Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55WF655 36" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

36" Sony Trinitron blinking red 4 times-PLEASE HELP QUICK!

My husband's precious TV has died! Moved a few months ago, since then occasionally TV would cut off and come back on in seconds (sometimes after hitting it). Two days ago I came in after being gone for a few days and it would not turn on at all. I could hear the "thung" sound like it was, a small flash of light at the bottom right of the screen but no picture at all. After a few seconds the smaller "thung" of the TV shutting off and then the red standby light is constantly flashing 4 times. We've already tried the hard reset and the whack/smack test (with vigor). Any other suggestions? I bought this used for about $300 over a year ago and I don't want to spend a ton to fix it. Should I scrap it or is it worth the repair? Thanks for any and all input/advice!
I have a 50" Grand Wega rear projection TV and the screen flicks sometime every few minutes and sometimes every few seconds. this is something new, and I am not sure what is causing it, very annoying problem, you would be watching a program and all of sudden the screen disappear for few seconds, and also the sounds would disappear with it. anyone have an idea of what is going on here? would highly appreciate an informative response.Thanks

    for first question
    G1 board has to be replaced, could it be the F Board also.
    but replacing them will cost you for more than a 200$ to 250$ including the techs charge.
    so i dont recommend the repair at this stage.

  • dewan nafees ahmed Feb 08, 2008

    for second problem
    this is the signal board going bad. the problem is there is capictors
    going bad on board. as they get old(or inferior quality) they leak onto the pcb board. this
    board is no longer made. tring to have it repair is not a good thing.
    it will work for a time but not long.
    so better replace the board itself to be peacefull for a period of time.

    good luck.

    dont forget to rate solution.

    thank you mam..

My Sony KP-46WT500 screen shows the tv image in blue only for a few seconds, then it goes completely blank (as if it were off). Do I need to replace the bulbs?


It is rear projection TV that use 3 picture tubes of red-green-blue to show color picture on tv front screen.
Do you see standby red light blinking when TV shuts off after showing blue image for a while?
If red standby light is blinking, please count it how many times it blinks, there would be 3 seconds pause between blinks so count pause to pause and post it here to find out possible solution.
Thanks.

Power light flashed red 4 times then repeats no pic,new bulb/fan!


Check the fan that cools the bulb. It is directly behing the bulb. It should turn on when the power comes on. It apparently has a safety to protect your tv(and home). mine is in the process of going out. looking for online solutions as we speak.

SONY GRAND WEGA KF-50WE610 can't turn on TV screen.


Ths 5 blinks usually indicate an AKB problem. There is a break in the video path. I'll look up your specific model and post the results here. Please update this if you wish to attempt the repair yourself.

36" Sony Trinitron blinking red 4 times-PLEASE HELP QUICK!


Sounds like a typical high-voltage failure. Could easily cost another $300 to have it fixed. If it is less than about 6 years old I'd say it was worth fixing. If you want to DIY, then pull all the electronics out (label all the connections) and send it all to either Module Exchange at 972-298-1212 or PTS Electronics 800-844-7871

Sony LCD television will not power on.


I get 5 blinking red lights for about a minute or so before it powers back down. The Sony TV has a specific light that i presume is supposed to light up when the bulb is out. I'm unsure if this is what it is.
no picture, no sound. tries to boot with green light blinking a few times. then goes to red blinking light, six in all, then waits a few moments, then another 6 blinking red light.
Bulb was already replaced several months ago but we do have the TV on for long periods of time.
